Based on the previous article of setting up Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus (AMP) with open source Grafana , we will now be provisioning Amazon Managed Grafana to integrated with Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus in this walkthrough.

Amazon Managed Grafana is a fully managed service for open source Grafana developed in collaboration with Grafana LabsGrafana is a popular open source analytics platform that enables you to query, visualize, alert on and understand your metrics no matter where they are stored.

With Amazon Managed Grafana, you can analyze your metrics, logs, and traces without having to provision servers, configure and update software, or do the heavy lifting involved in securing and scaling Grafana in production.

Connect Amazon Managed Grafana to multiple data sources in your observability stack, including AWS data sources like Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus, Amazon CloudWatch, and Amazon Elasticsearch Service, third-party ISVs like Datadog and Splunk, and self-managed data sources like InfluxDB.

Amazon Managed Grafana (AMG) is Generally Available on Aug’2021.

Step1: Create Amazon Managed Service for Grafana (AMG) workspace

  • Go to AWS ConsoleAmazon Managed Service for Grafana (AMG) > create workspace
  • Enter a workspace name eg. Grafana-Workspace
  • Enable AWS SSO Single Sign-On (SSO)
  • From the current account , Select all datasources support by the services and also Amazon SNS for notifications. After reviewing all the selections created, Click ‘Create workspace‘ 

Step2: Assign users to access the new created AWS Managed Grafana workspace

  • After the Grafana has been created, assign users to access the Grafana portal
  • Click on ‘Assign new user or group’ under AWS Single Sign-On (SSO)
  • Select the user(s) to allow access to Grafana.
  • Once users has been granted access from previous step, they can access the AWS Managed Grafana workspace URL:
  • From the Grafana workspace URL, the user can access the portal redirected signing in via AWS SSO

Now you have access to AWS Managed Grafana !! 

Step3: Configure Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus (AMP) as data source in AWS Managed Service Grafana

To monitor specific AWS EKS cluster, you will need to setup AWS managed Prometheus before using AWS Managed Service Grafana.

  • Before we can visualise the metrics in Grafana, its has to be configured with 1 or more data sources. Lets specify the workspace within Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus (AMP).
  1. Grafana Configurations > Data Sources > Select Prometheus as data source
